AAIS warmly welcomed members of the aerospace and UAS communities as well as partners to our Year-End HOST Networking evening on Thursday, 1 December 2022. The event brought out the festive spirit and marked the return of in-person HOST networking evenings for members since going virtual during the circuit breaker in 2020.

AAIS President Wong Yue Jeen kicked off the evening with an update on industry and AAIS activities, highlighting upcoming projects in conjunction with the Association’s 20th anniversary in 2023. Simon Wayne, GM for Asia Pacific at Bombardier Singapore Service Centre – co-host of the evening, then gave a brief overview of the facility and its capabilities. Guests were invited on an exclusive tour of the centre, which boasts the first business jet paint facility in Asia-Pacific, an integrated parts depot with US$15 million in parts inventory, office and lounge facilities for Bombardier customers and full-service interiors workshop, among others.


Attendees relished the opportunity to reconnect face-to-face with industry friends and get to know new faces. Some gamely participated in a special quiz, identifying and singing familiar Christmas tunes. The lovely evening came to a close with a lucky draw, which saw 3 lucky guests winning prizes, including a Bombardier aircraft model.


Guests agreed that it was a fruitful, yet relaxed and fun evening. We thank everyone for joining us, Simon and his team at Bombardier Singapore Service Centre for their warm hospitality and excellent support for the event. The next HOST Networking event is scheduled for 2 February 2023. Please mark your calendars.
